  1. Provide "Video Too Long" Error Message Immediately, Not at End of Upload

    Please stop letting people uploading videos that are too long and only tell them it's too long at the end of the upload. I would prefer to not waste my time or bandwidth having the upload almost complete before finding out there's an error.

    • Wrap text around an image

      I know I am able to wrap text around an image by writing/editing HTML. This assumes the user has HTML knowledge.

      Would it be possible to create a feature, enabling the wrapping of a block of text around an image? As opposed to only being able to place the text above, below, to the left or to the right of the image?

      Thank you.

      • Support more than 1000 geo-tagged photos in maps feature

        Currently the maps block can only show 1000 geo-tagged photos, please can you extend the numbers to at least 5-digit or unlimited?

        Many thanks.

        • Add more sites pointing to our domains.smugmug.com

          I have two major accounts I regularly upload photos for, one is an amusement business and they need media to be able to access a gallery of mine for publications. The other is my own photo business. I would like to have my photo business have a subdomain and their business to have a separate subdomain. That way when they send the press to my site to gather photos I've uploaded for them, they don't use my name, but theirs. But I can continue using my name for my other clients.

          • Change Map Pin Color

            On the current map content block, the map pin icons and the number of photo circle icons are light grey. The SAME light grey that the map is! You can't see the pins! Why aren't they red - the default color for pins on every web-based map that has ever been created? Ugh... maddening. My visitors look at the map and have no idea what to do with it because they don't notice the camouflaged pins.

            • Offer discount coupons at the purchaser level

              Should have the ability to offer discount coupons at the purchaser level in addition to the transaction level. So, if a specific purchaser bought above a certain threshold over time, a volume discount would be applied.

              • Add more Search options

                Currently, photos that are tagged with keyword are searchable. Improve search by detecting faces, locations, content of the picture and suggestive keywords. Some free apps (google, amazon) have this search capability.

                Also, provide search based on the photo metadata such as shutter speed, aperture, lens type, camera type etc.

                • Automated email sent when upload finishes, which includes a download link.

                  Automated email sent when upload finishes, which includes a download link.

                  No either this gets sent to me, or it gets sent to the client, eithe way a custom email field with the links to the gallery and the download all link would be great.

                  • Allow Google Tag Manager to track clicks on the BUY button

                    It would be helpful for those using SmugMug to sell their work via Adwords or other funnelling methods to track clicks on the BUY button.

                    Deeper level data tracking such as which images' BUY button was clicked on, how long the viewer stayed in this purchase area etc. Which products within the image page they viewed, Canvas, Metal, Paper, Keepsakes etc.

                    This would allow sellers to gain a deeper insight to their customers' behaviours. We might find data that will help us tweak our prices and/or products to make more sales.

                    • Let us sell a service such as a photography workshop.

                      It would be great to be able to list and sell photography workshops on a smugmug site.

                      • Undo Sorting (revert back to previous manual sort)

                        Undo a gallery sort. Say I've been manually sorting photos in a gallery, but want to try one of the predefined sorts, like sort by date taken. If I don't like that sort, I'd want to go back to my manual sort. Right now, no way to do that.

                          I am often in Organize mode and wish to send a Share email. That capability used to exist, but has been removed. I would like to see that capability reinstated. To send a Share email now I have to exit Organize mode.

                          • Provide geofencing capabilities to protect privacy of some geotagged photos

                            I love geotagging my photos, and letting people see where they were taken.

                            I also value location privacy when it matters. For example photos taken at my home or a friend's.

                            I've recently migrated away from Flickr to being a Smugmug customer, and there were some geoprivacy related features I very much appreciated and would really like to see Smugmug handle better.

                            The first problem I have is that you can disable map features on Smugmug, but I've just tested downloading a photo in a gallery with map features disabled, and location data is still retained in the downloaded image.…

                            • Charge ZERO commission on print sales

                              My SmugMug busines account costs me £240 at current conversion rates (plus foreign currency transaction charges), and charges 15% on all sales, including digital downloads (which is just stupid, because if a client is paying £600 for a gallery, am I going to pay £90 for them to download it, or send it to them via wetransfer for free?).

                              Increasingly competitors offer the features that I chose SmugMug for, but without the commission. The leader seems to be Zenfolio. Everything I want is in their Pro UK account for £192 per year, with no commission at all.

                              I have never…

                                • Photo frames with custom aspect ratio and repositioning

                                  I would like to suggest adding an option for custom aspect ratio and repotiioning of photo in frame in the single photo option.

                                  This would allow to use irregular aspect ratio, such as 4:1 or even 5:1, and the repositioning of the photo in frame (like in the gallery header) would be a natural complement for this feature.

                                  • Make it possible to see my Flickr & Google Photos albums/folders when uploading

                                    trying to scroll through 40,000+ photos is difficult when uploading from those sites

                                      Please provide a way to create a slide show that automatically cycles through all photographs in a group of galleries or that cycles through all photographs in a SmugMug site.

                                      • Allow different sized views for owners

                                        As an account owner, I'd like to view all my images at full size if I desire while maintaining security and protections. In essence, if I own the image, I should be able to see any size, while visitors to my site should only see the gallery set size.

                                        I believe Flickr has something similar to this implemented.

                                        • Create a way to add private/ hidden tags to photos in public albums.

                                          I work for a summer camp, and would like to be able to tag individual children across multiple public albums, without their names being displayed to the public.

                                          Can you create a way for users to add private keywords to public albums for this purpose?
